Forest eye Stevenage's Hunter

Sky Sports understands Stevenage's head of recruitment Leon Hunter has been approached by Nottingham Forest.

Last Updated: 07/02/13 at 12:46 Post Comment

Hunter, who has been in the role since last January, has a growing reputation within football circles following the impressive work he has done at Stevenage.

Hunter is credited with overhauling their player identification and scouting network and he's also played a key part in the club's new training ground development and academy set-up.

Stevenage continue to impress in League One despite working to one of the most modest budgets and attendances in the league.

The work of Hunter has not gone unnoticed, and he is understood to have attracted the interest of a number of clubs higher up the football league.

Forest's owners the Al-Hasawi family are thought to be keen to implement a director of football role into their management structure and they have a vacancy for such a position after chief scout Keith Burt was axed last month along with former chief executive Mark Arthur and Frank Clark.

Hunter is thought to have been approached about the Forest role prior to Alex McLeish's departure.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!

t's wrong to be making a joke out of Bender's name at the expense of gay people. It's the kind of childish, uncivilised thing that Football365 would deride and ridicule if it was another media outlet saying. Why is there a need for jokes like this? Does it make your writers feel like men? F365 might suggest that I 'lighten up', but it is genuinely traumatic for people who have been oppressed all their lives to be the butt of jokes, and to be told...
